"Emerging Opportunities, Challenges, and Applications in Exascale Computing"
February 18 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Birck 1001
The move towards exascalecomputing platforms (capable of 10^18 floating point operations) poses tremendous challenges, while presenting opportunities for foundational advances in a variety of application domains. In this talk, I will describe various technical issues that must be overcome to realize the potential of exascalecomputing platforms. It is widely believed that hardware underlying these platforms will have upwards of 10^7 computing cores, is likely to integrate SIMD (GPU)/FPGA coprocessors, have high latency interconnects (w.r.t. CPU clock), and is unlikely to have significantly higher RAM/core than today's HPC platforms.
